Waiting....

Well, it's been about two weeks since my last MRI and I'm anxiously awaiting the results.  I don't know what I'm waiting for....
It seems like lately it's the same thing....there's a spot there, it's not changing in size or shape, but still they are doing the MRIs every three months.  My doc at Walter Reed told me that hopefully this time they can schedule the next one six months out.  Well, that is indeed good news except hubby will be gone by then so my mother will have to come all the way here to take me, and she's already hinted that it might be easier for me to take a bus...or drive myself.  Hmmmm.....I think someone is living in fantasy land if they think that's going to happen :)
In any event, nothing new (and I really mean nothing) is going on here.  It's the same thing day after day and in a way that's a really good thing.  I've learned though not to get too used to consistency.  I see my specialist in May and I just know that he's going to change the dosage on my stupid Lactulose again, and just when I'm starting to not feel like I weight a million pounds from all the bloating.  I'm going to Ohio for 2 weeks in June to housesit for my mother and I'm really not happy about that.  Hubby is gone the first two weeks of June and I'm gone the 2nd two weeks....after that he's gone most of the month of July so I'd much rather be here with him for those two weeks in June than in Ohio. 
He's been gone since April 22 and not due back home until May 5 and I'm starting to climb the walls.  The only bright spot about this is that I don't have to get up at 4:30 am to take him to work and I don't have to pick him up in the late afternoon.  The apartment is also neat and clean without him here to make a mess LOL  All in all, I miss him terribly but must say it's nice to get some rest and have no agenda.  I'd still rather have him home.
Time to calm down the cats (they've been going crazy since he left) and get ready for church :)  Have a blessed and happy Sunday!

Hi Maggie :) Sometimes I just feel the need to be silent lest I ramble away uncontrollably. Anyway, there is no way I could drive myself to D.C...I don\'t do the highway and with all my meds a 4 hour drive would take me all day. And a bus would be just as bad. Hubby can\'t go to Ohio with me unfortunately....he can\'t have any leave time until right prior to deployment in the fall..oh well...I will have two fiesty dogs and my little brother there keep me company so that\'s a good thing :) Hope you\'ve been well and taking care of yourself my friend!
